I’ve seen some pretty bad spokespeople, but Jason Mauk may be the worst of all and Governor John Kasich agrees with him. Mauk is the spokesperson for Building a Better Ohio, the group that supports Issue 2 (SB5). This is the organization that pirated an ad from We Are Ohio, the group that is...

I can’t help but like James Carville. First of all because his political philosophy mirrors mine. But also because the man can turn a simple sentence into a folksy smart condemnation.
